you play music notes whilst i write words.

By Star

i've got you stuck in my mind.

dancing through verses i couldn't speak.

words upon words are the smiles
i toss your way when you're not looking.
i've got you written down on
a blue lined white canvas.

I imagine our kisses being ink splatters.
with lips so sweet tasting like
cherries and cigarette smoke.

letter after letter are the heartbeats
my soul makes when
you looked deep into my eyes.
you asked what color they
were through black lined glasses.
i told you they were hazel..

music notes you began to play.
i swooned soon after making thick
inked lines across the words i wrote.
you told me that you'll teach me to play.
i'm thinking of a song to learn.

maybe something by ed sheeran
or something a bit more like your style.

but... i'll have you know...
it hurt my heart when
i found out you had a girlfriend.

    Wow...there were so many wonderful entries to this contest, but when I had the pieces open and kept re-reading them to decide I kept returning to this one. You set up the ending SO well, and I love the path you took to get there. The small bits of detail, like the hazel eyes, or what song you would learn to play were just brilliant. Congrats, you rock, and thanks for participating! Ciao, T/S Scholar

    That's the gut, I'm talking about. From that place way down deep you bring up to the light and show everyone with your skin turned inside out. Grit and class in the same package. So well shown, you have a happy kind of gorgeous.
